Friends, Relationships and Community

You have the opportunity to spend time with your peers both inside and outside of school or college, but there are other places you can access if you would like to meet new people or try something new.

There are services in Milton Keynes that can help to support young people to develop and maintain friendships and to be able to feel safe and confident to access their community and enjoy leisure facilities and activities.

Lots of information is available on the Milton Keynes Local Offer. The local offer will tell you what services and activities are available in your local area. This includes volunteer organisations, sports clubs, community events, and youth groups. You can search 'Youth Clubs' in the Local Offer search function.
